Today, 08:26

The deployment of the missile defense system was an idea of the previous presidents of South Korea and the United States, Park

impeached for corruption

and Obama. Among other things, it was agreed that the US Americans would pay, but the new President Trump now wants Seoul [capital of South Korea] to contribute.

Tensions between the United States and South Korea have begun to appear only one month into the new administration of President Moon Jae-in. Seoul has for the time being suspended the complete rollout of the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery while it conducts an environmental impact assessment (EIA) on the area surrounding its location. Other signs of conflict are also emerging as Seoul attempts to balance between Washington and Beijing: here.
